Enjoy a mental reboot while gaining spelling and vocabulary skills with the all-new Candygrams. Simply roll the dice, match the colors, and create words. In this original word game, each player builds his own crossword, matching the colors rolled by the dice. Simple, yet strategic, Candygrams is designed to develop word skills, while sharpening minds.
The color restrictions of the dice add a surprise twist to this Scrabble-type game. The instructions for play are clear and succinct, with two alternatives, so getting started is a snap. The gameplay is relatively short, about 15 minutes, and with no turn-taking, and minimal waiting on other players, this is the perfect game for young players. Candygrams comes with 111 hefty tiles in three bright colors, two large six-sided dice with colored faces that match the tiles, and complete instructions. Recommended for ages 7 and up, however, Candygrams is challenging even for teens and adults.

”Candygrams is a fun new game. It reminds me of the very popular Bananagrams game but with a twist that makes the playing field a little more even for younger wordsmiths especially.”Read the Review
As a family of Bananagrams fans we really love this game!! The colors appeal to my little girls especially and they call it the Valentines word game. The dice adds a flair to the game and we are having a lot of fun with it. Personally I would rather do spelling this way :0)
We got this as a bonus for buying a complete curriculum and we use it to help with spelling words. We will use it more often when he begins to spell better.
I purchased this for those days when book work just isn't happening. Kids don't even realize they are learning because they are having so much fun. Great purchase you won't regret!
This game really gets my little thinking in a fun way! We pull it out for game night and she doesnt even know she is learning because she is having so much fun! It's also great for those days when book work seems to be boring and she is fed up with school.
I saw this and thought it would be fun to incorporate into our spelling routine. Something to take a break from the books. My son and I took it out and found it quite fun. It is like a scrabble game but with a twist. As my son progresses with spelling I can see this being very useful. Will keep adding into our routine for a fun twist on the day.
